Develop your people to be more of who they naturally are, not less

Many of us don’t identify with traditional stereotypes of assertiveness, power and success. It’s human nature to inaccurately perceive shortcomings, rather than to value our differences.  Traditional assertiveness skills training fosters the belief that people need to change their identity to be successful: to fit into the corporate norm.

Our approach is the opposite of that because we celebrate human diversity.

We encourage people to focus on their strengths and be more of who they naturally are – not less. Our coaching and workshops enable people to re-write their old stories and self-limiting beliefs, and to replicate that natural feeling of self-confidence we experience during time with friends, during the most daunting moments at work.  

Better commercial outcomes emerge from people who feel confident in themselves, who know themselves well and who are clear on what they offer and what they need. 

We don’t work exclusively with one group: we run Confidence and Impact workshops for everyone and have research-based tailored programmes for targeted groups including women and minorities. Visit our Inclusion section for more details.

Having a coach means creating the space to reflect and work on what’s important to you. It also means being challenged to stretch yourself to be the best you can be. 

During a typical six-month coaching assignment, you can expect to define and meet specific personal development goals of your choice and emerge with a greater sense of self-belief and purpose. Coaching goals can be around any topic, and we know we attract clients who want to use our expertise in focus and resilience, confidence and impact, inclusion and leadership.  

We listen, challenge, stretch and hold our clients to account.  Awareness is raised, good intentions come to life, and the result is more capable and impactful leaders. 

All our coaches are passionate about people and potential. We see the best in everyone we partner with and care deeply about the long-term impact of our work. We all have established track records in the business world and great depth of experience and credentials in professional coaching.

Contact us to arrange a complimentary session to explore how coaching could accelerate your career and personal growth.

Monthly coaching sessions for six months

This has to be the most inspiring and beneficial workshop I have attended and I would recommend anyone to do it. You have to be prepared to be open but the more you put in, the more you will get out. The content and facilitation are excellent and you will come away with the ability to make quick, positive changes straight away. If you let it, this workshop will help you to develop yourself, your career and any aspect of your life you want to apply it to. It has had a huge impact on me, in the best way possible.”
